The market of electric quadricycles, in particular turmoil, is enriched with a novelty. The new minicar manufactured in China and distributed by Filante Motors for the Italian market is called Swapa ZIP. The two-seater, which has a range of about 100 kilometres and reaches the maximum speed of 45 km/h, is equipped with an asynchronous electric motor and a 6.45 kWh lithium-ion battery, composed by two units weighing 18.5 kg each. The peculiarity resides also in the fact that the two seats are in line: it is, in fact, less than one-metre large and the second passenger is placed behind the Driver’s seat, a new concept.
The company explains that inside Swapa ZIP has a large 12.3” touch display, an integrated 4G connection, the unlock through smartphone and the remote monitoring of the charge condition and of the position. The mass-production will start in April 2024 and the first deliveries are scheduled in August. “The future of urban mobility will witness a growth of electric minicars’ popularity, in particular of those classified as quadricycles that can be driven starting from 14 years”, commented Francesco Maria Farina, managing director of Filante Motors.
For the national launch of the new electric Swapa Zip microcar, Filante is searching for a new resource who takes care of communication on the primary social platforms, with a role of Brand Social Ambassador.
